Nice dinner experience

Tried this place out during Gwinnett Restaurant Week. Had the $21.21 special menu. We had both the salmon and the shoulder fillet. Both were very good. Salad was excellent and the fried green tomatoes with goat cheese was probably the best I have ever tasted. If you like bar drinks, try the... read more

Just back from one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had in a very long time. Exceptionally slow service, kitchen ran out of items we had ordered, food was served luke warm or cold, and no one seemed to care or notice. I will never go back.

Visited Adam's a few years ago for the first time. Everything we ordered was delicious, we had a great time. Took my friends from out of town and they were amazed with the food.

The place needs some update. They offer live piano which is great. Menu looks fine but food could be more tasteful. I ordered escargots which comes topped with puff dough. Interesting idea, the meat was tender but I would prefer more juice. I also ordered a she crab soup which was very disappointing as the flour was not incorporated properly.... More

This was the absolute worst experience I have ever encountered in both a restaurant and owner. When the reservation was made we assumed it would be the normal menu, even when the reservation was confirmed no mention was made of a special menu. Upon arrival we were ushered into the basement and was told it was a buffet at $79.99... More

We had a reservation for eight, we didn't get seated until 45' minutes later, after much much persistence. In the meantime, people were being seated left and right. Two hours later, we have yet to receive our food. We were absolutely famished. So we tried to bring everything to the managers attention-he didn't even bother to come out, he offered... More
